Credit card fraud is becoming more and more common as newer forms of technology make consumers more vulnerable. When an individual unlawfully uses another person's credit card information to take money from their account or make purchases using their name, it is considered credit card fraud.
Credit card fraud is not taken lightly by law enforcement. These offenses can be charged on the state and federal level, with the federal government cracking down especially hard on the upsurge of these crimes. Some cases can even be escalated to involve the Federal Trade Commission or the FBI. Attorney Howard J. Weintraub can lend his insight as a former prosecutor to ensure you have a credible and resilient defense behind you.
